One of our NTP time servers is a standalone physical server. It gets its time from external time sources. This server is being replaced by a server which will be joined to our active directory. I realize all computers joined to a domain get their network time from the Domain Controllers. Hopefully it can still be used as a network time server.
Unfortunately our time clients are configured with an IP address instead of a dns name. The replacement server will inherit the old server's IP address so changes to the client's time config should not be needed.
Can this new server (joined to the AD) still be configured to go the internet to get time and act as a time server?
The old server is Windows 2003 sp2 stand alone. New server is Windows 2008 R2.
